在香港小學推行家長靜觀練習之成效初探

Research output: Contribution to journalArticles

Abstract

香港為高度競爭社會,家長需要承受不同的壓力,包括:超時工作、子女學業,甚至易感到緊張和焦慮。為改善家長身心健康及親子關係,於2018年期間在10間小學推行家長靜觀練習,並鼓勵家長在工作坊結束後,自行進行為期一個月的自我練習。本文探討推廣家長靜觀計畫成效的初步研究。執行前、後問卷調查、工作坊中的家長反思與30位家長的後訪談顯示,家長的生活滿意度與親子關係有所提升,靜觀練習能夠提醒部分家長更關注自我身心健康及孩子的感受,有助於增進親子關係。但此次家長靜觀練習的推廣受到現實的挑戰,包括家長因為工作繁忙而無法參與工作坊、學校家長靜觀課程時間及宣傳有限,資金有限以致於未能提供後續的家長靜觀練習、以及家長忽視自身身心健康等,諸多困境皆影響計畫的成效。最後,本文提出改善方針及推廣家長靜觀教育的建議。
Hong Kong is a highly competitive society and parents in Hong Kong suffer from various pressures, including working overtime, which may result in parents' stress and anxiety. To improve parents' wellbeing and parent-child relationship, mindfulness was promoted by the author in 10 Hong Kong primary schools in 2018. After a two-hour training in each school, parents were asked to conduct self-practice for one month. This paper explores a preliminary study on the effectiveness of conducting such mindfulness practice for parent education. Comparison of surveys before and after the project, parents' reflection during workshops and interviews with 30 parents after the project indicated parents' life satisfaction and parent-child relationships have improved. Mindfulness can remind some parents to care more about their own wellbeing and their children's feelings. The promotion of mindfulness to Hong Kong parents, however, encountered challenges including parents who were unable to participate in workshops due to busy work, the project having limited time, limited publicity, and limited funding for more mindfulness practices, parents' lack of awareness to the importance of own wellbeing, and so on. Finally, the paper concludes with recommendations on further development of parents' mindful education. Copyright © 2019 臺灣師範大學實習輔導處地方教育輔導組.
